    Well Dad, we had your celebration of Life on August 12th, and it was real. I miss you so very very much! 6 months without you, actually 199 days without you as of today. It doesn’t get easier, I still cry and have my breath stolen from me! It hurts just as badly, BUT, I have to let you rest in peace dad! Your spirit is probably restless because we cry. But I have yo know you’re okay and comfortable and no longer in pain. So I am going to try and let you go now dad. Not that I don’t miss you, and love you, but you deserve to be at peace. Until we meet again Daddio! Love always, your little girl💙
